Don't worry about Jack

He will show up at the party,he is practicing for the match and just pretends to be mad

He forgot to tell you that he gave me the 5,6,7,8 and break at 9 ball and beat me.
That wasn't so bad but he wouldn't adjust whenr he won my money.

Had the nerve to tell me that I would never improve if kept getting more weight

Told me too much weight tends to hurt your game.

i might start playing again if he makes me a new cue. Did you know jack made libra cues.

Anyway he has promised to make me one any day now.If I like the cues I might start playing again unless
I sell my table

You know, I've heard those things about CGs ( and Brunswick, generally ) since Diamonds showed up and I gotta say, I've logged in WELL over ( and yeah, I'm just guessing here ) 50,000 hours on Brunswicks ( 95% on GCs or that Viscount ) and not *once* have I EVER hurt my hand, fingers or knuckles ( at least that I can recall ) on balls counters, pocket casings, rails, etc, etc. Not once, let alone enough times to ever say "Man I wish someone would invent a table I can learn to despise so I don't mutilate my hands anymore!"

Seriously... not once. And I'm not saying this because I despise Diamonds ( and I do ), but because it's true. Not once. Did I ever have to make a bridge *over* a pocket because I didn't want black rubber streaks on my shaft? Sure... but no harm, no foul. Hell, the reason I taught myself to play left-handed was I hated using the bridge. Again, no harm, no foul. Taught me to be adaptive which is a HUGE lesson learned in life, not simply in pool.

Anyway, rant over...

Diamonds suck.

Ahh!! Diamonds would be the creme de la creme if they had that extra slot for storing balls in 1 pocket. As it stand they’re just Jelly. I don’t like sitting the balls by the feet

I do like GC as well and play some tourneys on them but I think my enjoyment comes from shots I normally rattle on the diamond going in. But I recently started playing and a diamond was my first table to really practice on

Quitting anything is just plain easy.......Just ask any smoker......How many times have they quit over the years?
That's why there's confession for Catholics where we get to say we've sorry, have repented and won't sin again.
Same thing like quitting. It's easy to say or write for others to hear or see. Now try backing it up with real action.

Like I started out, quitting is easy. Doubt me? Just ask any cigarette smoker how many times they've tried quitting.
You can't really quit any addiction.You have to retrain your mind and replace that addiction.with something different.
So until Dean comes up with a new addiciton, we've got him hooked on pool for the rest of his life until he replaces it.
